you might be able to see lebron pull a game like that off absolutely.....

if in the near future he decides to not give a crap and just shoot without his teammates, then he has the scoring ability to do it, though not as diverse as kobe or maybe as efficient....i can't blame kobe tho, i would have done the same if i was getting frustrated with how the higher ups were running my team...

KD is already shaping up to be a better offensive machine than both of them though.

Kobe Bryant took 46 shots (60.8 % shooting) for 81 points and many were contested long shots.


Not a Kobe lover, but its hard to hate this performance.

You guys remember that game Dallas was beating Lakers by like 20+ points (maybe like 30 points) at halftime and came back and won it? Maybe like 4-5 years ago? I just remember Mark Cuban at halftime saying how great it felt during a halftime interview.

n/m, found it: Bryant scores 21 of game-high 27 points in fourth

Kobe Bryant 2002-03 • 27 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists vs. Dallas Mavericks

Boy was that a fun game to watch.

KD is already shaping up to be a better offensive machine than both of them though.

and if either kd or lebron did that, id be impressed. Even if was against the bobcats. As a fan of basketball, how could one not love a game like that? Just shows people are more obsessed with players, or their own teams than the actual sport.

Why do people keep bringing up his 46 FGA as a knock? Regardless of whether or not you think he played selfishly, how many shots do you expect someone to take in an 81 point game? 81 points on 46 FGA is extremely efficient.

He probably wants something like 25 shots and 40+ fta. definitely would be a fun game to watch......

2 things make it a bit overrated.

1) His teammates were force feeding him the ball with the game out of reach. And kobe was still trying to score to add to his point total when the game was clearly over. He got about extra points trying to set the record when it wasn't really necessary.

2) He didn't see any aggressive double teams pretty much the whole game. The raptors defense was beyond horrible. You would think at some point they would aggressively double every time he touched the ball. That didn't happen.

Other than that, it was a great performance and he was on fire.

Its really a head scratcher that some people actually deny the impressiveness of said game.

It also gets brought up all the time. It's possible that no matter how great the game is, people just get bored talking about it and seeing it mentioned every other day despite the fact that it happened over half a decade ago.

I think Jalen Rose had a part in this...looking back.

- It seemed after the 2000 Finals , Kobe and Jalen forged a competitive dislike for each other (basketball court only)...jalen in the Finals was a beast/veteran...and seemed to push Kobe to almost the brink of a physical confrontation a few times.

- Watching the game it seemed like Rose/ peterson were like " we aint gonna show Kobe no double teams...we will shut him down"...and I can totally se Rose going Machismo trying to shut down Kobe one on one....and thus Rose easily selling Sam Mitchell on this idea.

- Lakers were down big to Toronto...it seemed like Kobe was gonna score but Toronto was going to still be ahead....Rose could easily say " you scored some points but we won"....

- Then Kobe went to another level and Rose's /teams ego just took over and they never decided to take the ball away from Kobe....they wanted to prove a point...and it cost them dearly

We get it, man. 81 points is better than 100 because when we are being taught how to count in kindergarten, it goes like this: 79, 80, 100, 81, 82, etc.

agreed about it coming up a lot, in fact too much in my opinion. most of the time its brought up by trolls or obsessed kobe fans looking to start or restart an all too familiar argument between posters. when thats the case, its pretty easy to just ignore them in their entirety. but instead, everyone tends open pandoras box by responding to the trolls, resultings in 10+ pages of recycled arguments.
